Stakeholders have tasked youths to key into the Smart Mega City and digital economy blueprint of Governor Chukwuma Soludo to transform Anambra State.

They spoke at the election of the Chuchu Nwalusi-led Amawbia Youth Vanguard, whose officers were presented with certificates of return by the Deputy President General of Amawbia Town Union (ATU), Nnamdi Onwuzuligbo, at Ezi-Okpaligwe Town Hall.

Speaking on the occasion, the Acting National President of ASATU, Onwughalu Nkwado, urged the Nwalusi-led team to develop policies similar to the manifesto of the Soludo administration for easy integration in the blueprint.

Nkwafo, who commended the election as free, fair and credible, urged the winners to display spirit of magnanimity in victory while urging the losers to show the spirit of sportsmanship.

Also speaking, the President General of ATU, Godwin Aronu, while affirming the result of the election, observed the ATU has offered the town a veritable platform to key into the state government’s programmes for the youths.

Aronu further urged the committee to partner with the town unions and traditional institutions in the state to organise regular youth skill development and women empowerment programmes as means to ensure job generation, wealth creation, income flow, poverty alleviation, improved living standards and societal progress.

He called on the new Youth Chairman, Nwalusi, to work harmoniously with the town unions and transition committee to leverage on and attract democracy dividends from the state government to the community.

Aronu noted that the appointment would help actualise the governor’s vision of using the committee as the third-tier and the town unions as fourth-tier of government to steer youth leadership and use its structure to reach the grassroots for even development.

He thanked the governor for ensuring that 70 per cent of the newly appointed Transition Committee Council Chairmen and Councilors are of youth age bracket, a development, he said, will engender good working relationship.
